Breaking the rule about my children with this one. Lace was with Leo from the very beginning. She is also a psych(o) major.
She’s always had your back.
Mother: “But what’s the deal with the models?”
Lace: “He’s just going through a phase.”
Mother: “But be careful what you wish for, it’s not always what it seems, look at Katie & Tom, look at Kelly & John.”
Lace: “Who’s talking about marriage?” (see a girl child’s fear of rings)
And, we have some connections in Greensburg where we really appreciate your support.
Greensburg is 92 miles northeast of the XIT Ranch, a stone’s throw. Kevin Lewis worked with Lace’s father and grandfather for 24 years. He is now a free agent cowman, saddlemaker, poet, and tells a good story living at his family’s homeplace south of Greensburg.
His wife’s cousin, a Huffman, is a patrolman you may encounter if you cruise thru on 54. A warning: the speed limit in this town is like 10 mph for what seems like a county . Stop and visit the Art Center, designed by Rockhill’s Studio at KU. Dan Rockhill is a master recycler. These are all good things to know in case you come for a ribbon cutting.
And, if you come in June we’ll let you help brand, but you have to start at the bottom. Lace’s brother Jack is tired of pushing calves in the chute. You would like him, he’s a musical dancing engineer-in-training cowboy and just helped take the KU Phi Delts to Rock Chalk. If you know Paul Rudd, please let Jack know when he’ll be back home to KC. They can meet at Capitale Grille on the Plaza and Jack will bring some Jayhawk basketball players he’s buddies with if Bill will let them out of practice. Jack also does a mean, “it’s the way of the future.”
But, you may have get through this guy. She’s her own agent, but his voice on her cell, “please leave an appropriate message” can be a bit off-putting for the faint of heart.
She may be out of Kansas by the time you stop by, but she’ll make the trip up and will facebook her 1,731 friends in Kansas and abroad for your arrival if she’s still on facebook post graduation.
So, even though you’re not a nice Kansas boy, fine job with your end on the green. We’re doing our part with the cowboy environmentalism: good land management and affordable proven new technologies. And another one, if it ain’t broke….
